The public is invited to Young at Art, our 11th annual exhibition of children’s artwork, when area students in grades K -8 have their work on display in the professional setting of the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in Hallowell.  Each year the gallery invites art teachers from elementary and middle schools from throughout the greater Augusta area to select their best student art to be featured in this community-wide celebration of talented young artists. Schools serving the following communities are participating: Augusta, Chelsea, Farmingdale, Gardiner, Hallowell, Manchester, Readfield, Richmond, Monmouth, Palermo and Windsor.

The exhibition, on view March 8-29, 2014, is free and open to the public. Hours at the Harlow Gallery are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 6pm.

The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday, March 8 between 12-5pm. Light refreshments available.  Please join us in celebrating the youngest artists in our community — families with children especially encouraged to attend.  Artists and their families and friends are requested to attend according to the following schedule to avoid overcrowding:
